Sold for $63,800 at 2010 Gooding and Company - Scottsdale Auction.
The MG SA was the largest ever designed and made its debut in 1936, initially as a saloon. It was equipped with a Morris-sourced 2.3-liter six-cylinder engine. Within a short period of time, the SA model was offered with coachwork by Charlesworth as an open tourer, and by Tickford as a three-position drop head. In total, there were 2,738 examples of the SA models produced.

This restored example was originally bodied as a factory-built, four-door saloon. It now wears a Tickford-style body that was installed during a restoration performed in 1990 by MG specialists. It is finished in two shades of cream with a matching leather interior. There are wooden door caps, dash and gold-faced instruments.

In 2010, this Le Mans Special was offered for sale at the Gooding & Company Auction held in Scottsdale, Arizona. It was estimated to sell for $75,000 - $85,000. As bidding came to a close, the lot was sold for the sum of $63,800, inclusive of buyer's premium.
